When you follow the prompts in the App, the GPS determines your current middle-of-green distance remaining and distance from your last shot.
Scoring is automatic within the App. Scoring is the percentage of shots made vs shots missed. If you make all your shots, you receive a 100% score, and if you miss all your shots you receive a 0% score.

Playing is as usual - a progression from tee to green.
Navigate to your created game in the App, select Scorecard and tap Hole #1. While on the tee, tap your hole number and tap Set Tee Location. Choose from the selection of tee boxes shown. Your GPS distance appears. Save. Tee up and take your shot.
Are you on the Fairway or Other?
Proceed to your ball. While standing over your ball, select where your ball is situated. The distance your ball traveled from your last shot is automatically calculated based on your selection and your distance to the green.
Your ball landed on the Fairway:
All golfers start at level one. Each level has a predetermined distance your ball must travel. You can check your level at any time on your profile screen or the leaderboard screen. If your ball traveled the required distance for your level, you will receive a percentage increase on your scorecard. If your ball did not travel the required distance, you will receive a percentage decrease.
Your ball landed on Other:
Your ball landed somewhere other than the Fairway or Green. That might have been in the rough or in the water. If the ball is unplayable as determined by your opponent or yourself, move the ball into the rough in a playable area towards the Fairway but no closer to the hole than where the ball is situated. If the ball was not found, follow the same procedure but with a new ball.
Your ball landed on Green:
Choose Green on the App. Attempt your first putt.
Answer the question: Is your ball within one Putter Length (3 feet) from the hole? Choose Yes or No.
- If Yes, the next prompt will ask if your ball is in the hole.
- If No, it will ask you again if the ball is within a Putter Length.
Maximum of 3 putts on the Green: 2 putts to get within a Putter Length and 1 to get it in the hole. If the ball lands in the hole from off the green or you sink your ball in a single putt, you are credited with the minimum shots allotted by pressing Yes both times. The game winner of a tie breaker is determined by the fewest shots taken.
Once the last prompt is asked whether your ball is in the hole or not and Yes or No is selected, the METAGOLF App will finalize the hole and move you to the next hole.
